Although the articles presented here represent principles of basic vocal function applicable to any style, these principles are historically the product of vocal pedagogy (voice teaching) as applied to singing as a classical art. It is important to understand, however, that efficient, beautiful, natural vocal function is universally applicable to any genre, including all the popular genres. No one has to sound like a classical singer to use the voice well.
These articles are likely more interesting for voice teachers than for voice students, but are offered here for those students or potential students interested in the technical aspects of good vocal function. For some it may seem highly technical while for others it will seem easily accessible to anyone with an analytical mind and a good grasp of basic science. It is not necessary to understand all these technical details, however, to acquire practical skill in good vocal function.
